The Secret Message of Jesus

Here’s an intro to the next book on the docket, The Secret Message of Jesus by Brian McLaren. 


A Prayer on Election Day in the USA

Thank you, Oh God for the changing of the seasons

The turning colors and falling leaves

Thank you, Oh God for a warm furnace

The peace of sleep at night while the air outside grows cold

Thank you, Oh God for the recent harvests

The food from the earth and the nourishment in our bones

Thank you, Oh God for dear companions

The family and friends who reflect your light and love


Thank you, Oh God for the President-elect

Whether he raises taxes

Or sends us to war with Iran

May it inspire us to live out your radical Kingdom

Of which we are citizens for eternity

Of which has no end

Or taxes

Or war

Thank you, Oh God
